Easy Console Table Makeover

Awhile ago, my friend and I bought some cute new pillows for her living room, step 1 in starting to decorate her house.  I always thought it would be so cute if she painted her console table navy blue.  So like a year later, we painted her console table.

Back to School Breakfast Ideas

School is starting soon and that means the morning routine is about to begin.  I'm always secretly excited for school to start and no--not just to get a break from round the clock parenting, but because I just love that time of year.  I love when it gets a little cooler outside and I love having a routine again.  But breakfast duty is not my favorite, especially when I was pregnant.  Let's just say my kids have eaten a lot of cereal in the last … [Read more...]
